ISO/ASTM 51276 covers procedures for using hermetically-sealed polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) dosimeters for measuring absorbed doses in materials irradiated by photons or electrons in terms of absorbed dose in water.
It also covers systems that permit absorbed dose measurements under the following conditions:
the absorbed dose range is 0,1 kGy to 100 kGy.
the absorbed dose rate is 1 times 10-2 Gy·s -1 to 1 times 107 Gy·s -1.
the radiation energy range for photons is 0,1 MeV to 50 MeV and for electrons 3 MeV to 50 MeV.
the irradiation temperature is -78 °C to + 50 °C.
